We have two presentations related to Wind Power: one discusses large-scale wind turbines, and the other a student project to bring small-scale wind power to everyone:
University of Michigan Professor John Everett of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Dept discusses the erection of utility scale wind turbine generators. Topics such as site layout, foundation design and implementation, collection line design and implementation, and turbine erection will be covered. Pictures and information in this presentation will be taken from real projects deployed by One Energy in and around Findlay Ohio.
Lecturer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, The University of Michigan
Presenting the small-scale viewpoint are University of Michigan engineering students from the BLUElab project team named Woven Wind. This is a multidisciplinary BLUElab project team that builds small scale wind turbines and works to advance a culture of sustainability, particularly with students in the southeast Michigan community. Recent projects include a permanent small-scale turbine installation at A2STEAM elementary school and a partnership with the Ann Arbor Hands on Museum that culminated in a portable, interactive and visual wind turbine. They will be discussing their education work and detail the project’s technical progress, challenges, and current goals.
